October 29, 2012, Victoria, BC – The Victoria Royals and Victory Barber & Brand today announced their partnership and the launch of this year’s Movember campaign in support of men’s health and the Movember Foundation.
Jamie Crooks, Tim Traber, Steven Hodges and Brandon Magee have been selected as this year’s “Mo Bros” and will compete for donations online throughout the month of November.
Movember is an annual charity initiative encouraging the growth of moustaches on men’s faces around the world to raise awareness, support and funding for men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health. Next month will mark the second consecutive year that the Royals have officially participated in Movember in an effort to raise funds for the Movember Foundation.
The Royals’ Movember campaign will kick off this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. at Victory Barber & Brand located at 1315 Blanshard Street. All four “Mo Bros” will be on hand to get a Movember grooming and kick off the month-long fundraising initiative. Victory Barber & Brand will also be offering moustache grooming by donation and contributing $1.00 from every moustache grooming product sale to the Movember Foundation during November.
November will see the Royals play six games at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre with the next home contest taking place on Friday, November 16th versus the Everett Silvertips. Games in November will see fun Movember giveaways, growth reports from participating players and nightly Movember-related entertainment. Be sure to join in on all the Movember fun!
In addition, SNAP Magazine and Lighthouse Brewery have partnered with the Royals for the “Best Facial Hair” contest. Fans can enter through Lighthouse Brewery’s Facebook page by uploading their best Movember photos. There will be two winners will be selected at the end of the month to receive the “Lighthouse Royal Treatment” including a limousine ride to and from a Royals game, centre ice tickets, dinner at the Beagle Pub, a $50.00 gift certificate to the Bay Centre as well as Victoria Royals and Lighthouse Brewery prize packages!
The month-long Movember campaign will conclude on Tuesday, November 27th when the Royals host the Moose Jaw Warriors. Jack FM and The Ocean 98.5 FM will present the finale while all fans will receive a moustache to wear in support of men’s health. Fans will have the chance to win one of many prize packages courtesy of Jack FM, The Ocean 98.5 FM, Victory Barber & Brand as well as the Victoria Royals at the game!
